About Club Racing.
The Club sails on Saturdays and/or Sundays from September through to April. We also run a winter series for those who are keen. Sailing times vary to coincide with incoming tides. Handicap racing ensures all sailors have an opportunity to compete on a fair basis and perhaps take home a trophy even when sailing an older boat.

Safe sailing under Covid19 Level 2
Any Club sailing event should aim to:
1. Keep our members and their crew/guests from catching or passing on Covid19.
2. In the unlikely event of a case to be able to quickly and accurately track all who attended.

To allow for safe sailing under L2 we must consider.
1. Not sailing or even attending our Club if we feel unwell or have covid19 symptoms.
2. Keep to physical distancing requirements and work within our “bubbles”. This is particularly important for support teams and guests. Reduce to a minimum mingling and chatting. Standing outside on the balcony (in the wind) is better.
3. Apply the hygiene recommendation already published.
4. No canteen and no showers.
5. The Cab must have an observer while boats are on the water.
6. The rescue boat must have an authorised crew.
7. There must be a nominated Race Officer who is automatically deputised by the Committee to run the event safely under L2.
8. The skippers briefing to be run from the balcony negating the need for crews to gather in the clubrooms.
9. One person to do the registrations of boats, crews, support teams and any other guests. This can be done, in the main, from the balcony. For Club members name only is required and for all others address and contact number is required. The list to be retained by the registration person.
10. Toilets may be used. All internal doors should be left open to allow wind through.
11. After the day is completed lock up and walk away, leave cleaning for another week.

Further notes:
1. There must be a minimum willing support crew of RO/Watcher, rescue boat crew and a registrations person.
2. Have this plan available to all members.
3. When an event is scheduled set some weather standards and cancelation process.
4. Wearing of masks adds little value if outside in the wind.
5. The information available suggest the most common way Covid19 spreads is person to person through water droplets exhaled as we breath. Standing apart in the wind reduces this chance.
